Smile FYI: One Possible Fix for the "Minion Can't Connect to the Internet" issue

So I was setting up minion for a friend, who just got ESO on PC. We were having a lot of trouble getting it set up. We tried disabling the firewall and the antivirus, updating java, installing 32-bit java, and some other things with no luck.

I finally found the log after some searching online, and noticed this warning before the crash "WARN 2017-05-26 12:03:43,197 [Thread-7] gg.minion"

After a quick generic search, I came across this stack overflow question and was able to quickly resolve the issue by running the following in a windows CMD Prompt (I ran with Admin, not sure if that is necessary):

setx _JAVA_OPTIONS -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true

Nice find egill! Thank you for sharing. I'm going to share this with our java dev to see if we can detect this issue and automatically fix it if found with the solution you provided.
